Ok, so I know it's been a WHILE since I posted the sneak peek of the Master Bath. We had a little bit of technical difficulty with the over toilet storage nook we got from Overstock (read: we were missing one of the required parts). Once we finally got the part, it took the hubbs a little while to actually get around to putting it together. Enough about the hold up - it's FINALLY done...yippie. I know you have all been anxiously the big reveal (or maybe that's just in my mind?), so here are a few reminders of the before:
It wasn't bad, it was just plain. I really, really loved my shower curtain, but since we took everything out of the bathroom while we were redoing it, I washed it & guess what? I faded my like $50 shower curtain - FAIL. So I looked around online & finally found one I liked from Kohls. And without further adieu, I give you the afters:
We painted the room in Granite Dust by Valspar & re-painted the trim white, replaced the old faucets, changed the outlet & register covers, changed the knobs on the doors (from brass to brushed nickel), framed the mirror, painted the vanity & added knobs to the cabinet doors, changed the lighting fixture.
Changed out the shower curtain, added a new double towel bar, changed out the robe hook on the back of the door (from brass to silver) & added the inspirational quote art on the wall.
Put up the over toilet storage unit & replaced the toilet paper roll holder.
Close up of the detail on the candle on the storage unit shelf - it has changeable screens for the different seasons, so right now I have the winter screen on it!
What do you think? Do you like it? I think it looks awesome. I love it! It is a close second as my favorite room in the house to the Master Bedroom!! I do think that I am going to move the inspirational quote wall art over the storage unit & add floating shelves on the wall it's currently on, then put knick knacks & framed art/photos on the shelves. And I will mostly cover the glass doors on the storage unit with frosted glass stick on's you can get from hardware stores. Besides those two things - it's done & I'm so happy. Next up is the mancave (basement), and that is going to take a while, b/c the hubbs wants A LOT & it's gonna cost $$. So yeah, definitely not doing much more than painting until after the new year.
On an unrelated note, can you believe Christmas is next week?!?!? Whaaaa. Again, how did the time fly by so quickly. We are staying around here for the holidays, no big plans yet...in fact, we may be having Chinese food for Christmas dinner, lol. Oh & last but definitely not least, today is the hubbs & I are celebrating our 7 year dating anniversary today! How did we celebrate you ask? We went to happy hour, lol. Hubby says now that we are married, we can't celebrate this anniversary too big (if at all)!
